A moment with: Rabbi Yitzchok Kornblau, COO
Rabbi Kornblau shares what the CFO job is all about.
(O) What is the CFO position all about?
(YK) A CFO brings additional value to the financial department. Our organization is dynamic and has grown by leaps and bounds. Our finance department is growing, too, and we’re stepping up to that level.
(O) What kind of experience is needed?
(YK) Because of the nature of the position, with a company of our size, obviously, lots of experience is necessary with budgeting, taxes, payroll, and accounting. Non-profit experience is a plus as well. Management experience is crucial, as well as the ability to work well with a team and to navigate departments within Oorah, as well as entities outside of Oorah.
(O) What’s the benefit of working as a CFO for Oorah?
(YK) It’s a corporate level job without the commute! You can be very successful in a corporation, but if it’s cutthroat it’s hard to feel fulfilled. Oorah is a great environment where you won’t just be adding money to your bank account, but to your olam haba bank account as well. That’s the best financial investment!
A moment with: An Oorah Bookkeeper
P.W. shares what it’s like to work as an Oorah bookkeeper.
(O) What does the bookkeeping department take care of?
(PW) Bookkeeping is a behind-the-scenes job, but we work with every facet of the organization. There’s a lot of incoming and outgoing funds, from accepting donations through running a huge kiruv and non-profit organization. We take care of accounts receivable, accounts payable, credit card payments, bank reconciliations, and so much more.
(O) So you get to see the bottom line?
(PW) It’s one of the perks of the job! And if people think Oorah is just about Fiveish, they have never seen the tuition assistance bank statements, or the camp expenses or Yom Tov package and event costs or anything else! Oorah does an incredible amount for so many people, and it’s amazing to see it in black and white.

(BT) Our department works on many diverse projects! These include business transactions, litigation matters, regulatory compliance and tax research.
(O) How does the legal team work?
(BT) Our attorneys work on certain projects on their own, but in most cases we interface extensively with other team members at Oorah. We also seek advice from outside counsel when we need assistance with a particular specialized area of the law.
(O) What’s it like to work for Oorah?
(BT) It’s a great environment! It’s great for work-life balance, which can be especially challenging for lawyers who often have to travel to the city.

(O) What about the other morahs?
(CR) They’re all very friendly; it’s a great place to work! Because it’s a family-centered daycare and all the kids’ parents work at Oorah, we all care about each other. With a supportive environment and good communication, it’s a fun place to work. It’s a social place, too; there’s lots of adult company and conversation.
(O) What daycare positions are available?

A moment with: An Inbound Sales Representative
MW shares his experience on the Kars4Kids sales team:
(K4K) What’s the inbound sales position all about?
(MW) We’re the face of the company. But our job isn’t just about answering questions and providing information. The goal is to get donations, so there are a lot of sales techniques involved. Marketing can make the phones ring but we have to use our expertise to turn the calls into donations. Excellent phone skills, great communication abilities, and a motivated personality is important. Aside from that, full training is provided.
(K4K) Can you tell me a bit more about the training?
(MW) The training program at Kars4Kids is top notch. We teach many different sales techniques – for example, the importance of a confident and upbeat tone of voice. We teach how to effectively retain control of the call from beginning to end and how to motivate undecided donors to donate. We use a lot of resources to bring out our employees’ full talents.
(K4K) What do you like most about your job?
(MW) I see how hard Oorah works to make sure every employee can grow into the best possible position for them. Every manager shows dedication and they’re always there to back you. There’s always someone to ask if you have any questions, and there’s never feeling stuck or frustrated. They care and want you to succeed.
